Thanks to all who helped make holidays bright

On behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Lake Stevens Senior Center, I want to acknowledge some very special people who helped make the holiday season joyful for seniors in the Lake Stevens area.

First of all, on Dec. 12, Lake Stevens Windermere Real Estate provided and served a wonderful holiday lunch at the Senior Center, complete with entertainment and door prizes. In the spirit of the season, the volunteers from Windermere saw to it that everyone had a wonderful time. 2008 was the ninth consecutive year that Windermere has given this gift to Lake Stevens seniors, and it has become an event that no one wants to miss.

Because of the icy streets, a party to be held on Dec. 25 at the Senior Center was rescheduled for Jan. 3. Despite the delay, there was no lack of holiday spirit. Once again, wonderful people from the community donated their time and resources to make this a memorable event. Ed and Anne Spence and family have made organizing a Christmas Day party at Lake Stevens Senior Center a priority for several years. Food and gifts were provided by local businesses, churches, organizations and individuals. Thank you to Bonney-Watson Memorial Corporation, Lake Stevens Kiwanis, Wild Birds Unlimited, Bridgeport Home Owners Association, Holy Cross Catholic Church, Holy Cross Lutheran Church and Lake Church. In addition, members of the Lake Stevens Family Church delivered food and gifts to 30 home-bound seniors on Christmas Eve.

Lake Stevens Senior Center will be undergoing many changes in the year to come. We know that the one thing we can count on is support from our community. Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
